2nd time visiting...

Again, the food was incredible. Can't believe I haven't been in about 9 months. I should be going more often. I highly recommend and will return again.

This is not a very big restaurant so don't be surprised if there is a bit of a wait. However, even on Sunday morning of VT parent's weekend it only took about 20 minutes to get a table for 4. Our server was pleasant and was helpful with menu choices for our daughter who has a temporarily limited diet. The... More

Sean M, thank you for taking the time to give us a review. Sorry for the late response, we got a little behind on our reviews. One of our main issues at Lefty's currently is handling extremely busy days with our limited space. We are glad that the wait wasn't too bad for you though and you were met with... More

This was our first visit and we sat outside on the patio. We ordered chips with curry sauce to start and it was different but good. We ordered one salad and two different burgers. The salad was a bit pricey for what was on it. The burgers tasted like they were home made on your own grill which was nice... More

I've eaten here several times and the food is always great. It's served hot, with house made dressings and sauces, and I've never been disappointed. I recommend the Cobb salad, the burgers (I've tried almost all of them and they're great), the turkey reuben, or the soups. This is one place we always take visitors because we know everything will... More

Just stumbled upon this place during a quick trip to Blacksburg. Great beer selection, outdoor seating, excellent salads and creative sandwiches and burgers. A perfect formula for a nice lunch. Plus, my favorite, perfectly cooked homemade potato chips.

Thanks for your feedback. If you didn't do so last time, we suggest trying our chips with one of our homemade dressings- either the cilantro lime, mustard or curry vinaigrette-it should take the chips to the next level. Glad your experience was a great one. More

All the positive reviews are spot on. Leftys has great food and great service. I ate in a comfortable atmosphere with my family and we all liked the place. My meal was a special sold well by our waiter. It was a pork tenderloin that was marinated for 12 hrs in a Jerk spiced brine, very tender and delicious, served... More

I recently took my mom here for an early Mother's Day dinner; she lives out of town, but visits often and we wanted to try somewhere different that we don't usually gravitate to. We enjoyed our food so much that we've returned a few times since then! Between us, we've tried the salad/sandwich combo, the shrimp and grits, and the... More

I'm not a restaurant chain person and prefer the local spots like Lefty's. It's on the list of go-to spots in Blacskburg for me and my friends when we decide to go out for lunch or dinner. Probably my favorite of all (probably my favorite sandwich ever) is the Lefty's BLT. It's a BLT with pesto and jack cheese on... More

Thank you for the support. I apologize for the bathrooms. We have recently thoroughly cleaned them. In regards to the BLT at dinner: Any time you are craving one, whether lunch or dinner, simply ask and we will be more than happy to make it for you. Finally, if you are looking for another healthy alternative to the red cabbage,... More

This is a very casual place with great home cooked, fresh food. The college students who work here are very pleasant. Don't miss a huge glass of chocolate milk.
